“Only a fool would let someone as special as this slip away.” Those are some wise words from Desean Black – the man that plans to give singer Amber Riley his last name.

That’s right – the talented Ms. Riley is about to be married to the man of her dreams! The happy news was shared on Instagram, Riley and her fiancé are photographed in coordinating outfits. Her diamond ring sits pretty on her left hand as the soon-to-be-married couple beam with happiness.

In her caption, Riley describes how she manifested her relationship with Black after almost giving up on love. Her journey, she says, started by cultivating self-love.

“There was a time when I thought I didn’t want or deserve this kind of love,” she wrote. “I’m looking at a man who changed my mind. My time by myself, loving on myself, getting comfortable with myself, prepared me for you, and prepared me for this. I am so proud to say, I am the future Mrs. Black.”

Black returned the love his page with a repost of the same picture. He describes in the caption how he knew Riley was the one. “Fellas, when a woman looks at you like this, it’s a clear indication that you’re doing the right thing,” he wrote. “Now, when she delivers unconditional love that you’ve never experienced, it’s another clear indication that you’ve found the one. Only a fool would let someone as special as this slip away. So I did what any wise man would do and put a ring on it.”

The engagement news comes a month after Riley went public with her relationship. The former Glee star participated in the “how it started vs. how it’s going” social media challenge, which showed a screenshot of the initial DM slide that snagged her future hubby. The photo next to it shows them affectionately boo’d up. Teach us your ways, sis!

Congratulations to the happy couple!
